Ex-Flight Attendant Facing New Charges

Ex-Flight Attendant Facing New Charges

A former AirTran Airways flight attendant accused of calling in a bomb threat one week after the events of September 11 will face new federal charges, authorities said Monday.

Turhan Lamon was scheduled to go on trial this week in Clayton County on state charges of making terroristic threats and false statements. The county had indicted Lamons for calling in a bomb threat to an AirTran flight a week after September 11.

State prosecutors, however, agreed to drop those charges last week to allow the U.S. attorney’s office to pursue the case.

Lamons also faces another set of federal charges for allegedly trying to set fire to ComAir Airlines Flight 5491 on May 8.

The commuter jet made an emergency landing after smoke filled the cabin.
